The tight end position has seen a little bit of everything. Every week it seems we have a new names to consider. Some young ones developing right on time and that’s very encouraging for what is typically a talent-starved position. Then there are the journeymen whose names we kick around and stream each week.
It’s not always easy to navigate this feast or famine position, but we’re always looking out for the right matchups. Right now, let’s see which ones do NOT pass the grade for Week 9.
Mark Andrews, Baltimore Ravens at Indianapolis Colts
It’s been a disappointing season for Andrews owners out there. It’s been everything or nothing for the entire season with three top 5 finishes and four games where Andrews failed to break the top 20. He scored less than four fantasy points in each of those games, leaving his owners furious over the poor results. Part of it is the nature of the position, other times it’s the matchup. However, in two of those four bad games for Andrews, he faced a very good defense.
Which brings us to the Colts–one of the worst matchups for any tight end. A position like TE is so dependent on the ability to score. How have the Colts fared so far on this stat? Perfect… in preventing any from happening. Now fantasy owners are free to take the risk on Andrews because Lamar Jackson has to throw it to someone, but the Colts are a difficult play for all positions. If Andrews had more consistency in his game we’d feel better about playing him despite the matchups, but he’s not, and that makes it easy to bench him against the Colts.
